The Takeover Day scheme is backed by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner, who give kids the chance to shadow professionals and to see what is involved in the day-to-day operations of a shopping centre. The year six pupils were taken on a unique behind the scenes tour of the shopping centre including the sprinkler room, recycling centre and control room. Following this they visited the management office and the Ask Me Point to learn about how each job function contributes to the smooth running of the busy mall.
